1964 Honda S500 Model A

The 1964 Honda S500 Model A was a sports car manufactured by Honda Motor Company Limited in Japan. It was the first sports car produced by Honda and was a key player in the Japanese car market.

The S500 was equipped with a 0.5-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine that could produce up to 44 horsepower. The engine had an innovative chain-driven overhead camshaft design, which was a rarity during that time. It also had a four-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive.

The car’s design featured a sleek, aerodynamic body with a low-slung roofline that was reminiscent of European sports cars. The S500 could reach a top speed of 80 miles per hour and could accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just over 20 seconds.

The S500 was launched in 1963 and was followed by the S600 in 1964, the S800 in 1966, and the S2000 in 2004. The S500 played a key role in establishing Honda as a major player in the automotive industry. Its innovative design and performance set the standard for future Honda sports cars. Today, the S500 is considered a classic car and is a popular choice for car enthusiasts and collectors.
